Rigid Packaging with Borcycle™ M

Recycled polypropylene (rPP) compounds increase recycled content in high-quality packaging applications

High-recycled content with virgin-like performance. Curious?

Meet your increasing performance demands, and raise recycled content in your applications, with the help of our Borcycle™ portfolio for rigid packaging solutions.

Our Borcycle recycling technology is always evolving, offering a range of compounds made of recycled polyolefins (rPO), which are ideal for use in sophisticated rigid packaging applications. Several grades are now available to match your different requirements.

Choose a post-consumer recycled material with reliable and consistent quality

Use a ready-made drop-in solution with virgin-like processability

Reduce CO2 emissions by 15% vs comparable virgin polypropylenes

Ensure excellent end-of-life recyclability in existing post-consumer recycled streams

Advanced mechanical recycling

Borealis is one of the first virgin polyolefin suppliers to commit to the circular economy of plastics. With our pioneering Borcycle rPP solutions, we aim to significantly accelerate the transformation to the circular economy by delivering enhanced performance in mechanical recycling grades.

Innovative new closures made by MENSHEN – based on Borealis Borcycle™ compounds

“The functionality of a closure may be affected by natural variations in post-consumer recycled materials. By leveraging our respective areas of expertise, MENSHEN and Borealis can determine which ratios of recyclate and virgin material are appropriate for which applications.”

Ulrich Fleischer, MENSHEN Head of Sustainability.
